Honda has teamed up with SEGA at San Diego Comic Con 2016 to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th Anniversary by revealing a customised car in the form of the Honda Sonic Civic.
The car is based on the turbocharged 2016 Civic Touring Sedan and will be on show at SEGA’s sold-out Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary event at the House of Blues in San Diego.
James Jenkins, Public Relations Manager for the Honda Division said
What better way to showcase the incredibly sporty performance capability of the 10th generation Civic than by pairing it with gaming industry’s ultimate athlete – Sonic the Hedgehog. As the fan favorite game and character celebrates his 25th anniversary on the scene, we hope that all Sonic fans – those who remember playing years ago and those who continue playing today – rejoice in his all-new ride, as much as we enjoyed creating it.
